There, you can view the number of impressions, conversions, and conversion rates for each of your forms.
If you want to view further details regarding your form conversions, click the View Full Forms Report button at the report’s bottom.
This will redirect you to Google Analytics » Behavior » Events » Top Events.
Now, you can view the total impressions and conversions triggered by your forms on this page.
If you want to view the impressions for each of your forms individually, then you’ll need to click on the Event Label link in your Forms report Primary Dimension.
As you can see in the above screenshot, you’ll be able to view the total events for each of your Contact Form 7 forms individually. “Events” here refers to both the impressions and conversions.
